    My question is for a carry gun, what are the bad things that can happen with a compensated gun? I realize one very good thing for it allows for reduce felt recoil from a more powerful cartridge. But I don't know if that is good enough to overcome the bad things from a compensated gun (whatever those are). From your experience what would do you suggest about these types of guns for carry? Is this flash worse than the flash that can come from a revolver? and or worse than the flash from the gun on the front page of Stress Fire :wow:

    Anything you can add about this would be appreciated.

    Also a big THANKS! for all that you do for 2nd amendment rights to keeping all the community informed in such a downed to earth way.

    Unless you use a particularly "flashy" load, there won't be that much difference in night shooting. However, firing from a close retention position can be dangerous with a compensated gun as it will blast hot gases and unburnt powder debris up toward your eyes.
